I was out wandering around with my camera last week and saw an immature osprey in top of a large pine tree. A few minutes later further down the trail I saw it again in another tree and closer. It was calling and kept looking my way. I continued on and it moved again this time landing on a fairly low branch in an oak tree within 15-20 yards of me. It was looking at me and vocalizing. I guess I looked like its mamma and it was hungry. I've seen owls do the bob and weave with the head but this was the first time for an osprey.

Unusual encounters like this are such blessings.
